SciFiNow interview with Young Justice Executive Producers

Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti, Young Justice Executive Producers!
Website SciFiNow did an interview with Young Justice Executive Producers, Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti, where Weisman and Viettie talked about their thoughts on creating Young Justice. When I came across this interview, I thought it would be great to put on the blog because it gives a really good background info about the animated series and answers a lot of questions that YJ fans might have. Here is an excerpt of the interview, to read more, which I highly recommend, go here: http://www.scifinow.co.uk/interviews/young-justice-interview/

“We were told they wanted something with Justice League or younger characters,” Weisman, the creator of Disney’s Gargoyles and, most recently, the guiding force on the Spectacular Spider-Man animated series, explains. “They threw out the Young Justice title — just the title — and I think we were both terrified, because Bruce Timm’s Justice League Unlimited is so iconic. And Teen Titans is a very different show, but it’s also a great show in the other direction [in terms of age], and so for us to forge something that was new, and wasn’t treading on the turf of those two shows, was sort of scary. But then we found our placement with this covert ops team, and I put together a list – I’m not kidding – of 50 teenage characters for us to choose from.” The result is that the duo ultimately chose Robin (Dick Grayson), Kid Flash (Wally West), the new Aqualad (created by Geoff Johns in Brightest Day), Artemis, Miss Martian (niece of J’onn J’onzz) and Superboy
